For instance, mine is from one of my favorite bands and is also my initials. How about you?

my username is timmy the ultramorph because I have always wanted to seean ultramorph in a future movie. I really do not know why I have timmy in it. My name is not timmy.

No reason, really, just popped in my head and seemed relevant.

I did/do like how it sounds though.  I only have a few other on line avatars and they are all terrible by comparison! :) 

Good thread DK

Xeno referencing the Xenomorph

Taris because it sounded cool like a Protoss name.

My little sister helped me get my first email address in 1993. She was so much smarter then i was and is not with us anymore. So i cannot ever get rid of that name. She gave me the name cause i used to be a sponsored snowboarder for allian snowboards and vail snowboard supply company. That and i obviously live in Vail Colorado. I miss her greatly and she loved the Alien films.

Now I know why Geiger made Fox nervous a bit, what a picture, still grossed out, lol. Mine comes from the days of smoking the herbs of the earth and an alternate stoned personality, I think! Only been a hardcore Alien franchise fanatic for about four years but I live it and breathe it. Like it's a calming agent running them for the thousandth cycle. Good times, mostly

Capt Torgo Might that be Targo from Manos?

I've been using my handle for many years now. It's a reference to some rather obscure work by Pink Floyd in their early psychedelic pre-Dark Side of the Moon days.

Loving everyone's answers so far!

Well, when I first joined this forum it was just because I wanted to post my fan fiction "After the Crossing".

David's little taxidermy project made a cameo in my story, so I decided to make my username a reference to that. :)

VivisectedEngineer Is there a Vivian in the mix as well? I always wondered about that name.


Aug-04-2017 6:29 PM


I actually really love that inference! But no, I'm afraid my real name isn't anything close to Vivian. I never made that possible connection until you guys pointed it out!

In fact, when I chose it for posting my story, I was actively trying to avoid picking anything that sounded feminine because I always fear my writing will be judged more harshly if people know that I'm female. 

My dad and husband both thought it was really funny that such a macabre name got morphed into something nice though, lol.

VivisectedEngineer Thanks- it is interesting to hear what goes into user names- even if it is just something random as a couple have stated.
